devitacommerce Hello. for some reason i cant seem to make any radiobutton to work on tablet or phone, therefore customer is unable to select any shipping method when on mobile devises or tablets. is there any solution for this? thanks.

Hi massaros,

The solution would be to disable the radiobutton javascript call.

I send an email about a week ago about this theme. Is it possible to give me a response in about 2 days?

LoxDesign

Hi Kcm75,

Can you send it again, we didn’t receive anything!

Thanks

Hi,

This is a great theme, I have purchased it and set it up in a test environment and it works well. I was wondering if you could give us an indication on when should we expect a 1.5.4 compatible update?

Thank you

LoxDesign

Hi yiorgosm,

First of all thanks for the kind words!

Well after we finish our current project we will start with the update process of Mars (more or less in about a month). :)

Hello LoxDesign,

recently i purchased your theme because it looks awesome, i installed Zen Cart and applied theme using my hosts Softaculous software which speeds setting up of Zen Cart ( I also did it manually on my other host which does not supports that). Now i want to customize my theme and to choose your third, dark skin, but i cannot access Mars configuration menu under configuration menu of Zen Cart because it doesnt shows up. So my question is where can i find Mars admin or configuration option?

Thank you in advance :)

LoxDesign

Hi M4tr1x,

If you can’t find the Mars configuration it probably means you didn’t install the SQL which comes with the theme. Check out the “2.1 – Installation” point of the documentation.

Thanks for response, i managed to get it working in the meantime, i think it was something with SQL, but thanks mate, theme is awesome! P.S. Add to cart button is not quite visible to read until I hover over it. do I have to change CSS for it or is there some other way around?

LoxDesign

Hi M4tr1x,

Great news :) Yes, for the add to cart button you have to adjust the CSS a bit. Check out the comment sections here. You will find the answer.

Dear LoxDesign,

We’re still waiting a update, for Zen Cart 1.5.4. version. Because it is not fully compatible.

Thank you.

Hi modding,

We hope we can start with the update process soon. Meanwhile if you want you can send us a PM with the things you have problem with.

hi Lox. Sorry to bring this subject up again. Its been months since this issue was up. It needs fix. Its 2015 now. so many people are using mobile devices to shop. Disabling the plugin is not a really good solution, it makes this radiobuttons look bad, they turn into one fat vertical line and still not functional. Is there any code solution to actually move the clickable area 0.5-1.00 cm to the right to bring them right on top of radio buttons on mobiles and tablets? Which file and class you would suggest me to touch to physically move it so when you touch the radio button with your finger on mobile devises, the select would work – this needed in selecting shipping method, or payment method. As of now you need to select 1 cm away to the left to make it work (on android and iphone). If you are going to try to see the problem you need to try it on actual devices, not on emulators. (i also tried on emulators from touch screen laptop, when i use mouse it works, when i use finger i need to click it 1 cm to the left from the radiobutton.) thanks.

LoxDesign

Hi devitacommerce,

Sorry for being a bit late. At the moment from our part the only solution would be disabling the plugin. You can also check out directly the plugins website and maybe you find there also some answers too (fronteed.com/iCheck).

Hope I could help.

Best regards, LoxDesign

LoxDesign

Hi devitacommerce again,

To update your question and have a quick temporary solution after disabling the plugin you have to do 1 more think for the radio buttons to be displayed correctly: go to file “YOUR_SITES_ROOT_DIRECTORY \includes\templates\mars\css\stylesheet.css” and edit this lines:
FORM,
SELECT,
INPUT {
  display: inline;
  font-size: 1em;
.... 

SELECT,
INPUT,
TEXTAREA {
  border: 0;
...
and change it to:
FORM,
SELECT,
INPUT[type="text"] {
  display: inline;
  font-size: 1em;
...

SELECT,
INPUT[type="text"] ,
TEXTAREA {
  border: 0;
...

Best regards, LoxDesign

Hello I purchased this theme recently, nearly finished customising/implementing it and have a few questions. Firstly -

There is an option in the admin to set when the main menu turns into a drop down list (Main Menu – Responsive Breakpoint) – I would like to also change the breakpoint for the Top Menu, can you explain how I can do this? Also the Top Menu seems to disappear completely on a mobile / small resolution, is this normal behavior?

Another quick question – when something is copied from the product page and pasted elsewhere some additional text is added eg ’- See more at: hxxp://xxxxx.com ’ – how can I remove this feature?

Thanks for any help!

LoxDesign

Hi ,

You can control the breakpoint of the Top Menu by editing the stylesheet.css (of theme_1.css, theme_2.css – depends on the activated skin).

Just look for this code:
.headerLinksCont .sbHolder {
    display: inline-block !important;
    margin-top: 5px;
  }
If you move this code up or down in the different media queries you will have different results. Its also normal that it disappears on mobile version, you can control that exactly the same way. About the copying issue, you can disable this feature by going to the “YOUR_SITES_ROOT_DIRECTORY\includes\modules\mars\js_header.php” and you change this line
<script type="text/javascript">stLight.options({publisher: "ur-e809c2e3-896d-2d83-d1fa-b581ca833bde", doNotHash: false, doNotCopy: false, hashAddressBar: false});</script>
to
"<script type="text/javascript">stLight.options({publisher: "ur-e809c2e3-896d-2d83-d1fa-b581ca833bde", doNotHash: true, doNotCopy: false, hashAddressBar: false});</script>
.

With the doNotHash set to true if should disable the extra “see more…” text.

Hope I could help.

Thanks for the reply! This worked well, I also had to move this code to fix the top menu:

.headerLinksCont .headerLinks { display: none; }

Cheers :)

Hey bboylaces,

Great. Welcome anytime.

Hi LoxDesign, I would like to add a ‘Back’ button to the checkout pages, so it is easy to go back a step, is there a simple way to do this with the History back() method…would you know how I can code a button to do this? Thanks :)

LoxDesign

Hi bboylaces,

Answering both of your questions you can do it only by editing the php and js files manually.

Best regards, LoxDesign

Default-user

Ok, I will try and look into that further.

Is it possible to run the ‘add 2 home’ js script for iphone etc only on the homepage? I find it annoying popping up on every screen…..

LoxDesign

Hi bboylaces,

You would have to edit the Php and Js files manually.

Hi,

I have searched for this, but I have found only issues related to the mobile devices. I have an issue with checkboxes using all devices.

In the “Contact us” page there is not the privacy checkbox, so when I try to send a contact requests it says that I have note checked the privacy statement. You can see here: http://bika.it/contact_us.html?language=en

Thanks, Massimo

LoxDesign

Hi carmaox,

Looks like you added the checkbox in addition, on our site there is no checkbox for privacy. http://themes.loxdesign.net/mars/theme_3/index.php?main_page=contact_us&action=send

Good Morning, Where to begin…..................... I have sent 3 emails, none answered, heck not even a thanks for buying my template!

Hi, I purchased the Mars Template and I really like it. I need to know how to build and edit slides for the Revolution Slider in Zen Cart. The Revolution Slider comes with an editor in Word Press where you can design and create your slides and then upload them. Zen Cart doesn’t have this function available so I’m not able to design my own slides. Is there a tool or editor I can get to do this? What is the best way to do this? Thanks!

LoxDesign

Hi InStockGifts,

Happy that you like the theme :)

To edit the content of the sliders go to Tools-> Define Pages Editor-> and look for flex or revolution slider in the dropdown. Yeah you are right Zencart doesn’t have a slider editor, that’s why if you edit the HTML code be careful (make first a backup).

Hope I could help.

Best regards, LoxDesign

Default-user

Hi Lox, Do you have plans to come out with a more user friendly html editor (like the one used in Word Press) in June 2015? That would be an Awesome tool for us non tech people. Thanks! InStockGifts

Hello Lox, we have had problems reported from customers viewing the site on Samsungs and Nokia/Windows phones…are these known issues? Should the Mars theme work perfectly on every mobile? Thanks

LoxDesign

Hi bboylaces,

Yes the theme should work on all mobile version.

Regards

Default-user

We’ve tried a fresh install and still had problems on the Nokia/Windows phone. The site does not scroll / crashes. I’ve tried installing a free responsive theme and that works fine. I will be able to test things on a Samsung this week and will report what I find.

LoxDesign

Hi bboylaces,

Ok let us know.

Thanks

if i buy mars template today, is it compatible with zencart 1.5.4? Thank you

LoxDesign

Hi mgl2015,

No, not yet. We guaranty compatibility until version 1.5.1.

Hello,

Which languages are translated?

Thank you.

LoxDesign

Hi Ageorgeault,

The theme is translated into Spanish and German and there is a guide on how to translate it into your own language too.

Best regards, LoxDesign

The download appears to be missing the sample product data and layout setting for the demos even though all the sample product images are included…

Do you have a separate file for demo products?

LoxDesign

Hi chadderuski,

No sample data was included into the Theme. When you install zencart you can tell to install you the sample data which comes with it, but from our side only the images were included so that you can see a sample folder structure but the data you have to put in.

Hope I could help, Regards

Hi Lox! I hope you are doing well. I was wondering whether you could help me with the following issue that I’m having.

I’ve recently installed The Cross Sell Plus Advanced Combo 1.3. Everything seems to have been installed correctly (I’ve merged a number of files), but I’m getting an
Uncaught ReferenceError: showtrail is not definedonmouseover @
and
(index):763 Uncaught ReferenceError: hidetrail is not defined onmouseout    @
error when I move my mouse over the slider content.

Unfortunately, I don’t really know how I could go about trying to fix this. Any pointers would be much appreciated!

Hi Lox, I’ve noticed that I’m getting the errors regardless of the plugin.

Uncaught ReferenceError: stLight is not defined(anonymous function) @ product-name:287 jquery.carouFredSel-6.2.1.min.js:15 carouFredSel: No element found for ”#testimonials”. jquery.carouFredSel-6.2.1.min.js:15 carouFredSel: No element found for ”#sidebox_slider”. jquery.carouFredSel-6.2.1.min.js:15 carouFredSel: No element found for ”#carousel”. jquery.carouFredSel-6.2.1.min.js:15 carouFredSel: No element found for ”#images”.

Very strange, because I’ve never had this problem before.

LoxDesign

Hi IsaBrown,

It looks like you don’t have content defined for all this carouFredSel sliders or maybe you have some other type of javascript error and that’s why you are getting this error messages. If nothing helps try a fresh install, maybe that will solve the problem.

image handler module for Zen Cart – I installed the image handler module, however, the module does not seem to be completely transparent in respect to the template – is there a version of this module that is compatible with this template?

We were advised to use this module…

Default-user

Thanks.. I installed the specific files that were required for the template, however, the image handler is still not functioning properly… If I click on the image handler icon of a product, in default and large, the image appears, however, the medium is a broken link that is pointing to the images/medium library where there are no images available… as follows:

Yair Emanuel Embroidered Raw Silk Tallit Jerusalem

Please advise…

Aran

Default-user

I need to add that my site is based on 1.51 zen cart and the latest version of the image handler is 4.3.2

Hi eranariel,

Please check out your email, I replied there with the solution.

Can you please help to change the style of language the same as currency? http://www.sawtheair.com/mars/mars.png

LoxDesign

Hi persion,

I can help you out with the currency and language reference files but how to modify the files you have to figure it out. Sadly we don’t have the time to do it.

So here are the files: 1. - YOUR_SITES_ROOT_DIRECTORY\includes\templates\mars\templates\tpl_currencies_header.php
2. - YOUR_SITES_ROOT_DIRECTORY\includes\templates\mars\templates\tpl_languages_header.php
3. - YOUR_SITES_ROOT_DIRECTORY\includes\templates\mars\jscript\script.js – this is the javascript file where I call the custom dropdown plugin, on line 172: $(".currencyHeader select").selectbox({ effect: "fade" });

Try to adjust the behavior of the language file like it is in the currency file.

Hope I could help.

Best regards, LoxDesign
